If you find mold, wet wallpaper or unusually high water bills, chances are that your home or building has a pipe leak. Although pipe leaks are very common, they cannot be ignored.

TDT Plumbing is equipped with several traditional and modern plumbing repair methods to fix pipe leaks, as well as leak detection services. Leak detection is very important because leaks must be stopped or prevented immediately to preserve the property and prevent serious damage from occurring.

After thoroughly investigating the pipe system and its environment by performing various types of tests and inspections, we provide our customers with solution options. Sometimes it is as simple as replacing a leaking plumbing fixture or a piece of piping, but if the pipe system is showing signs of age, we may suggest a long-term solution, such as the ePIPE pipe lining process.

Continue to read below to learn key actions you should take if you encounter a symptom of a pipe leak.

 

 

 

If you find mold:

When mold is found inside a home or building, it is often the result of a pipe leak. Mold produces toxic substances and can cause allergic reactions, skin irritation or respiratory problems. When the presence of mold is ignored, it continues to grow, the source of unwelcomed moisture remains and health risks increase.

First, contact a mold remediation specialist immediately to get the mold safely removed from the property.

Then you will have to find a plumbing company with solutions to find pipe leaks and to rehabilitate the pipe system to prevent leaks from occurring in the future. If you manage a non-residential property, contact TDT Plumbing. If you’re a homeowner or in an HOA, and located in southwestern Texas, contact TDT Plumbing. The experts at TDT Plumbing can work with mold remediation professionals if mold remediation on the property is necessary.

 

If you find water on the floor, ceiling or through the wall:

Leaks can pour water into the structure of the building, causing a ton of damage. Signs of leaks must be taken very seriously and resolved as soon as possible.

Turn off the water to the leaking pipe immediately and dry the area (if possible). Contact a plumbing company that has various solutions to fix leaking pipes. If you manage a non-residential property, contact TDT Plumbing. If you’re a homeowner or in an HOA, and located in southwestern Texas, contact TDT Plumbing.
